NYC Audubon’s Fall Roost benefit dinner is coming to Tribeca Rooftop on Tuesday, October 2. This year’s benefit will honor Andrew Farnsworth, PhD, and Volunteer of the Year, Annie Barry. Learn more about this year's honorees here.

Held annually since 2005, The Fall Roost raises funds for NYC Audubon’s numerous conservation and education programs while honoring some of the City’s birding and conservation luminaries. The evening begins with a silent auction (see a full list of the fabulous items up for bid in the silent auction here) and reception at 6:30pm, followed by dinner and program. You can expect great food, excellent company, and a silent auction featuring new eco-adventures, unique cultural experiences, and a few fun surprises.
